Angular DateTime Picker/Angular Material DateTime Picker is a lightweight and mobile-friendly component that allows end users to enter or select date and time values from a pop-up calendar and drop-down time list. It provides month, year, and decade views for quick navigation to the desired date. Date-time pickers are all over the web and have been gradually evolving as developers and UX people work their magic. However, they can still be a frustrating experience, especially given that pickers are difficult to implement once for mobile and desktop.

Benefits Of It
Our goal in creating the Angular 8+ bootstrap date & time picker is to create a datepicker that adheres to Design principles and is flexible enough to work across different applications and in different locales. The datepicker is still a relatively new component and there is plenty more work to be done, but we believe that the current design is a solid foundation to build on.
On the desktop this isn’t a great experience:
- You get no interface beyond the tiny inputs for entering the hours and minutes portion of the time.
- The up/down arrow buttons are tiny and clicking them from a trackpad is a pain.
- When the picker is open, it’s not obvious what the button with the dot does and there are no tooltips.
